Is everyone who grooms the ladygarden secretly itchy?

Trimming my pubic hair is almost unbearably itchy. Is this fixable?

I am a woman. Sometimes I shave the edges of my public hair (my bikini line, I guess). This causes no problems.
Sometimes I trim my pubic hair, I like to trim it down to about one inch long, maybe a little shorter. This causes extreme itchiness as I am walking around and just going about life. I have talked to one female friend who does the same thing and has the same problem. What gives?
I know there are lots of women who trim, and I am guessing that not everyone has this problem. Do I need to trim shorter to avoid the itching? Is there some secret trick to avoiding itchiness? Am I just unlucky?
The itching tends to gradually stop after 1-2 weeks.
I am sure that it is not an STI (or caused by something other than trimming my hair), because I have been tested, I am monogamous, and I itch every time I trim, but never when I don't trim.
